Toyota Sequoia Coolant

Coolant, as it relates to vehicles, is regularly a liquid or gas substance used to regulate the temperature of your engine. Liquid coolants are usually half water and half ethylene glycol. Water is used to transfer heat while ethylene glycol is used to lower the fast point of the liquid. In colder climates, this is extremely helpful. Interestingly enough, this isn't the first time you've heard of ethylene glycol as it is the main ingredient in the popular term "antifreeze". Keep in mind, you never want to pour antifreeze or water by themselves into your engine system. They need to be combined to create the suitable coolant.

You can purchase ready-made mixtures of coolant that already have water added, or you can purchase full-strength antifreeze which needs to be diluted with distilled water before being added to the engine system. Give the experts at Coggin Toyota at the Avenues a call at 9043376618 or schedule service online and let one of our technicians and service advisors handle your coolant flush.

Every car manufacturer, including Toyota has developed its own coolant or requires a specific coolant that is unique to individual years and models. There are several colors of coolants to help distinguish each including green, red, blue, yellow, purple and orange. It is difficult to do your research if you plan to purchase, flush, or replace the coolant in your vehicle. Bountiful models will not be compatible even with "universal" coolants or antifreeze.
